Not as good as night before
Overall: good show, but not quite as strong as night before, IMO. Why is there a dearth of decent recordings of these Pitt shows? Of the multiple recordings on Archive of these two nights, this is the only decent recording.
The scene: after the disasters of the night before, this night had a cloud hanging over it. Police state in PA. I also remember hearing rumors that the band was really pissed off about the irresponsible behavior of people crashing the gates (duh, I was pretty pissed myself!). Nonetheless, they came out and still played a great show.
The music: Not quite the heavy hitter of the night before, but still interesting song selections and good play. El Paso was a bit of “break-out” as they hadn’t played it in quite some time. The Phil chanters got a decent Tom Thumb’s. Another second set Brent opener, with a ripping Blow Away. Whole second set is fairly strong. Brent is really prominent in these shows, which in my book is awesome, but some (crazy people!) don't agree.

PITT finals. Nearly broke up with boyfriend that

This show sounds amazing compared to the night previous. Pure Soundboard. Show fades in on GSET during the firest verse. Slight digital static sround 1 minute mark of GSET. 5 star sound, 3+ star performance-wise.

This is a very different show than the 1st night - also a great show, but with a far more mellow, easy-going pace. Some interesting song choices and placements (Greatest Story opener!). Double encore is always nice too - good show!

I liked the first night better, but this is a nice show. El Paso was a great surprise. Jerry blew the opening lyrics to Bertha, but got stronger the rest of the night. Good sbd here as well.

Nice Song Selection
Very nice first set with a nice arrangement of Greatest Story>Bertha, JAR, El Paso, etc.
Well played, solid throughout. Nothing spectacular, but we were fairly spoiled at this juncture.
In terms of wine vintages - Just short of a benchmark year. Otherworldly fall tour leaves unforgettable finish. 96.

This is all Wier for me. I have been looking for a SBD of this show for 15 years. The first night gets all the rave, and for good reason. I however was partial to Bobby during this phase, it was just one of the zillion reasons that I was there. The backhand, the antics, name it. Anyway during El Paso he had this shining blue light on him and it was just majestic. Mydland's vocals are tight. Now I am rambling.
Thanks for the Board! I give it a 5 but I am not objective.
